Woolwich Schools

Woolwich Schools and Colleges

School and Colleges Admission and Discharge registers are an under-used resource for family historians. They give the dates of admission and discharge, date of birth, the school attended prior or subsequently, address of student, guardian, and, if lucky, more personal info.

Much more information on the history of Woolwich Schools can be found in Woolwich history books:

Some schools were names after a nearby main road; please note the school may not actually be in that road. Similarly, the address given directly after the name of the school need not necessarilly be the actual address.
Some schools had a change of name (typically from a street name), or the same school name was used in different locations at different times.

FamLoc lists Woolwich schools and colleges, include info about admission and discharge registers, and where possible includes a map link of the schools location.

Remember that the school or college attended might not be in the same town as the student lived.

    I am looking for information on Maryon Primary School, Woolwich. I believe Gladys Mulhern was the principal in the 1930s and the staff included Doris Schofield and my mother, Gladys Allen. Any information would be helpful. Thanks

        Hi Irene & Gillian etc, my name is Timothy Waters and I attended Maryon Park from 1956. My parents were teachers there (met, and got married in, I believe, 1951) – Derek Waters and Muriel Mason / Waters. We lived in the ground floor of Doris Schofield’s house in Elliscombe Road up until 1958. Both Scho and Gladys Mulhern, who we knew as Guv, remained friends with our family for the rest of their lives. They were both wonderful and generous people – really inspirational. Guv lived until the ripe old age of 98, I believe, and died peacefully at home without suffering any particular illness. She was a devout Baptist and left her entire estate to the local Baptist church where she lived in Wanstead.

      Miss Mulhern was also the principal in the 1950s, I was there 1951-53. I was in Mr. Reed’s class all the while I was there.
